George Lois.






George Lois: The Esquire Covers at Moma
Assouline, 2010

I love old magazine covers. Some of my favourites are old Nova covers from the 70s - I guess these are the male equivalents. They are genius. They sure were clever back in the day - I can't imagine cleverer than us because we are so lucky and get to drink genetically modified milk and giant hormone fed tomatoes but somehow they seem cleverer. The audiences the editors are pitching at appear smarter too. I sound like an old fart.
